Johnston to Hold High School Plan Public Hearing

johnstonJOHNSTON, Iowa — The Johnston school district is holding a public hearing about building a new high school Monday.

In July, the district put the project up for bid but received just one offer that was $8 million over budget.

District leaders extended the time frame for contractors to complete a new high school from 23 to 32 months.

There are now three new bids, which all are still over budget.

District leaders will discuss the bids at a board meeting at 6 p.m.

A public hearing is at the top of the agenda.
